Way past time to catch up on this work. So week 6 is looking at “Models for Teaching and Learning Multiliteracies”. Timelines out of whack Ahh, that’s right, this was the material we had to pre-read in order to complete the assignment that was due in week 5. And look, the trend continues. We’re asked
After a couple of weeks focused on assessment, not to mention two assignments which I’m far from happy with, it’s time to return to some study. First, the ICTs for Learning Design course and this week the focus is on WebQuests, including “contemporary ideas about webquests and why they are not necessarily aligned with our
Via George Siemens I learn about my iPhone tracking where I’ve been, a nifty app that can visualise that data, some useful resources to implement this sort of visualisation, and some detail about the file format. The obligatory visualisations of my movements – significantly less a world traveler than George – follow (click on an
Ahh, the life of a student. No sooner is one assignment completed, is another one underway. In this case, one I’ve essentially ignored/forgotten about until a week out from being due. This post documents some early thinking about how I’m going to start my “Student diversity report”. The assignment description essentially boils down to You
What follows is a ~1600 word reflective blog post required for assessment purposes. I find myself less than pleased with this assignment. In part because I don’t think 1600 words is enough to do justice to the problem. But also because of my own limitations in terms of knowledge of the context and content. Introduction
The assignment for ICTs for Learning Design that I am meant to be completing has a rubric with four criteria. The fourth criteria is Model and support safe, legal and ethical practice During my wonderings within the course, I have yet to come across (or remember) anything that explains what is considered “safe, legal and
Update/recommendation: The following may be helpful for some, but it has it’s limitations. For example, in terms of coming up with L&T applications for Minecraft I was constrained by my limited knowledge of Minecraft, and even worse, a limited view of L&T. For a broader view I suggest reading about and engaging with Massively Minecraft.
And so the final group of technologies to play with prior to the assignment. This is an open-ended group and includes: animations and simulations; Google earth; Google Maps; and Google docs. The “historical” recap of what I’ve done associated with these technologies is part of the assessment – showing that I’ve “played” with the technologies.
I’ve only listed to some of the audio of this presentation, and from that experience, watching the video is probably the advised approach. I find this interesting because of how it undermines the smug confidence of some folk who are so certain that they are objectively correct. That they are logical, objective and unbiased. It
Late last week I was thinking about how I could develop something approaching a WCYDWT lesson for mathematics. It is something I am going to have to do very soon now. As it happens, in looking for the WCYDWT link, I came across this Diigo group that I am going to have to return to.
